why do Canadian fashion labels suck?

Recommended Posts

Canada has a decent retail scene (komakino, roden gray, nomad, tnt , reborn etc), however most Canadian labels suck.

Outside of W+H, we got crap like dsquared.

I see alot of similarities between Canada and Australia yet their brands are lightyears ahead of ours.

wtf

I always thought Dsquared was from socal cus it sucks.

Riddle me this:

Why does Canada suck?

because we don't shoot/sue each other at the drop of a hat, and a stay in the hospital doesn't cost you your life savings...I thought that was plain.

oh shit i forgot that we also don't rack up $1,000,000,000,000 deficits on "national defense"

Just a rumor, though.

proud canadian does not equal bashing the US and comparing ourselves and our own policies, urghghh

also, the reason why there are a bunch of "unproud canadians" is because we let anyone into our country, and they very often do not identify themselves as 'canadians', but rather, whatever nationality they were born into. at least that's what i experience in TO a lot

yes i wholeheartedly agree with that...people are constantly suing left right and centre! but i know if we had the same system here in Canada that we wouldn't be any different...

well its free to sue someone, and there's no reprocussions win or lose. You get attorney ads running all the time "We only get paid if you win!"

It's too tempting of a proposition for the Jerry Springer crowd.

most fashion labels suck anyway, no matter where from. the original question is moot.

just... wow. canada's current and future economies are carried on the backs of immigrants and foreign investment. i wouldn't say stuff like that in such an interconnected world.

immigrants who come here and aren't given recognition for their education and job credentials are right to be bitter and to hold onto their homeland ties for some sense of belonging or identity -- after all, it's not like canada is doing much to encourage the inclusion or ensure the wellbeing of new canadians.

i'm a second gen canadian, my parents have said openly and often that if they would never move back to hong kong -- it's not their home anymore, toronto is.

anyway, 2000db is right most fashion sucks period. if you're looking for ways to support independent, local businesses and economies, buy local everything else.

ya canada is good place to live

i think life here can be too comfortable however. The lack of adversity and false feeling of security lulls us into being too passive.

I just dislike the lack of innovation and willingness to take risks in this country.. We're behind the world in so many ways in terms of technology and cultural exports. We have ability to do better but seems we give up before ever trying. sad :(

I mainly made this thread because i was curious how there is seemingly so much going on in the Australia, yet Canada doens't compare. I suppose that part of it is because we're so close to the states we dont feel the need to really exert our influence.

note - rocky, i'd just like to draw attention to the fact that despite there being little happening in canadian fashion, there isn't really much of worth coming out of australia...the majority of it is loosely based around the party scene, and wearing absurd shit in an effort to distance yourself from others who are also draped in absurd shit.

and if you want to talk risk-taking, how about unilaterally changing 20 million contracts to charge people for a service they have no control over? THATS gutsy!

Line designed by a Canadian- Vibskov is a fan and features it in his flagship store.

budget gothninja

I didn't really see anything there, Vibskov store is all chick stuff (was there today) and crappy.

I'm travelling and people are like "you're American?" yes. "from where?" Vancouver.

my brother said he pissed all over himself laughing at it...said its very real and accurate, doesn't pull punches the way most movies would...there's supposedly some pretty horrendous things done and said in the film, notably a very dirty dirty talk scene
